You can do it using a DataSeries on an indicator, but I always just used a flat text file to communicate between strategies. If you look in the Downloads section you'll find a tool called 'exportdata' for NT that has 95% of the logic you need to create and write text files, to read them is not any harder.

Then the idea is the strategy first checks the text file before deciding to do something, and if is "OK" then it writes to the text file something so that the other strategy then knows to do something different, etc.
